Disabled Boy Kicked Out of School for Lack of Vaccination

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Ali and Orooba Hamideh’s disabled 9-year-old son, Ameer, lost his vaccine exemption after the passage of New York’s Senate Bill S2994A in June 2019, which removed all non-medical exemptions to school vaccination requirements
  • Ameer was born prematurely and suffered a stroke at birth. He was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at age 3, and has a rare seizure disorder called Lennox Gastaut syndrome
  • Ameer’s seizures began after his first round of vaccines at 5 months of age. His parents, who attributed the seizures to the complications at his birth, dutifully followed the recommended vaccine schedule. It wasn’t until he got a flu shot at the age of 2 that they started asking questions
  • After getting a medical exemption from his neurologist, Ameer was again denied school access after the New York Department of Health denied the exemption, stating his seizure condition was not a contraindication to vaccination
  • The Hamideh family sued the school, and November 12, 2019, the Erie County Supreme Court judge presiding over the case issued a temporary restraining order to allow Ameer to attend his classes at the CHC Learning Center for the duration of the court proceedings. The case is still ongoing

The global vaccine market was valued at $35.8 billion in 2018, and it’s predicted to nearly double by 2024. One major reason for this exponential growth has to do with the fact that more vaccines are being mandated as a condition for school attendance, while vaccine exemptions are being eliminated.

After a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 2011, vaccine manufacturers are also the only corporations selling products in the U.S. that cannot be sued, even when there is evidence the company could have made a product safer.
